Prep 40 mins
Cook 8 mins
From Coup de Pouce, issue of June 2006. A recipe for the barbecue. In the preparation, there is 30 minutes for refrigeration.
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 1⁄3 cup monterey jack cheese, grated
- 2 tablespoons red bell peppers, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons sweet onions, roughly grated
- 4 flour tortillas, 12-inch, warm
- 2 cups lettuce, cut in fine strips
- 1⁄2 cup guacamole
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- Mix delicately ground turkey, cheese, red bell pepper and onion. Shape in 4 patties of about 1/2 inch thick and put on a baking sheet that has plastic wrap on it. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to let the flavour blend together.
- Put barbecue to medium-high heat. Put turkey patties on greased grill. Close cover of barbecue and cook for 8 minutes or until patties not pink inside. (Flip at mid-cooking).
- Put a tortilla on a working surface. Garnish half of the tortilla with 1/2 cup of lettuce, one turkey patties, 2 tablespoon of guacamole and 1/2 tablespoon of sour cream. Fold the tortilla on the garnish. Prepare 3 more tortillas the same way.
So easy and tasty. I made the patties ahead and froze them, so made for a really easy week night meal. I formed the patties into long ovals, making it easier to wrap in a tortilla. We found the portions quite generous - only used 1/2 patty each. Thanks for sharing.
A burger with all the flavors of a taco yum! Very flavorful and the mixing of the onion, red pepper and cheese into the meat pre-cooking is a nice touch. The only change was to use corn tortillas instead of flour. Thanks so much for the post.
Burgers are ever popular in my house..so little danger of us not liking this.
I used chicken mince, and used a mixture of red and yellow peppers. I had intended to cook these outside on my beautiful Weber Q barbecue, but it decided to pour all day long (typical..the only day this week..), but I ended up cooking these in the oven instead.
They cooked up beautifully, moist, tender and juicy. DH had his in a quartered tortilla, I folded a big iceberg lettuce leaf around mine and ate it that way-delicious!!
